One thing that I enjoy doing as the year comes to a close is looking back at the previous year and wondering is a company better off now or 12 months ago. To say it has been a rough year for Impact Wrestling would be an understatement, but they keep powering on. Though year has been another tough year on the long list of those type of years recently they still are a company. In late 2016 then TNA Wrestling was purchased by Anthem Sports & Entertainment from Dixie Carter to keep the company in business. Since then a lot has changed and below are some of those changes that have happened:
- Jeff Jarrett was brought back in control of the company & finally got Global Force Wrestling on television.
- TNA Wrestling finally change their name to Impact Wrestling but then would change it to GFW following the unification of TNA & GFW titles.
- Following the departure of Jeff Jarrett the company officially changed their name back to Impact Wrestling and has done away with GFW.
I could continue but I think it's clear that management problems haven't stopped even with Dixie now as minority owner instead of the leader. The other big story this year for the company has been talent leaving for greener pastures like Drew Galloway & The Hardy's. At the time I was happy that both Galloway & The Hardy's would get another run in WWE but at the same time their loss was huge for Impact Wrestling.
Overall, I think that company just needs a string good luck where they have zero negative press & can start building up positive press for the company as it may get fans intrigued at least. The other thing is that I hope stability isn't too far away for the company as I think getting the company stable again would help very much.
The one stop shop for all things TNA Wrestling. At first you may not agree, but every now & again you might be surprised.
